Date fields allow you to store date values in a structured manner. Date fields are designed to represent calendar dates without including any time components. The date field type is essential for accurately managing date-related data, such as tracking events, scheduling tasks, or managing historical records.

Choosing the appropriate date field type and formatting conventions ensures the proper storage and retrieval of date values. We allow you to represent date values in the specific format: "YYYY-MM-DD" (ISO 8601). This format includes the year, month, and day components.

➡️ Examples of date fields in a database might include:

  • Date of Birth: Storing a person's birthdate.

  • Order Date: Recording the date when an order was placed.

  • Event Date: Tracking the date of an event or appointment.
